I got to shoot one today and I have to say. having never shot Bear, I was impressed. Smooth, fast, and balances well for a short ATA in my opinion. It'll make a pretty nice hunting set-up. Now my questions is, is this bow, being targeted more towards SD archers, going to be faster/more efficient at my DL/DW vs. say a "regular" bow at my DL/DW (26"/52lb). Just a thought I had. It really seemed to zip those arrows downrange.
